Here Comes the Bride...

53 DaYS....OMG!

$2000 bUDgEt....OMG!

Those be the numbers that sticketh in my head.

Today is the dress pick up day in Sioux Falls. And, the shop till we drop or run out of money day also.

My list is long...sort of. We have lots of ideas and are hoping for success in finding anything that makes those ideas cheaper.

We are a thrifty family.

Or should I say a family who thrifts.

Either way...it is what we do and we kind of like it. Even if I had $10,000 to spend on a wedding, I wouldn't. No fun in that.

Here's my list:

  • Fabric for the veil
  • Christmas lights
  • Galvenized buckets
  • Fabric
  • Fabric
  • Fabric
  • Maybe some more fabric
  • Wooden plus sign
  • Wonder Under (yeah this stuff is fabulous)
  • Candles
  • Candle holders from thrift stores
  • Fun, colorful paper
  • Swimsuit (nothing to do with the wedding. I just need one.)
And anytime you visit Sioux Falls when you live in Aberdeen, you look forward to the food. Yum!

Here's to early mornings, road trips, mom and daughter days, and...

Good Morning, Robin,
It sounds like you girls will have lots of fun. I hope you find everything you need on your list...maybe all at Hobby Lobby? (Well, except for the swimsuit!)

Have a safe trip. ~Natalie

p.s. I'll be anxious to hear where you had lunch...
